Searching for new exciting colour schemes I came across coral red. This intense dark red underwater life form, sometimes even pink or with orange undertones, has been harvested for centuries for its unique qualities as a gem stone. I used these reds here in combination with a very calm and subtle sea foam green, or better blue? This gives a nice contrast and a maritime feel to your origami kusudamas and other folds. Shrimp models and lobsters should look great, too.
Whether you use it in a single model for nice gradient effects or plain in uni, the possibilities are endless.
The paper comes in a pack of 60 sheets in six shades, 10 sheets per colour. The paper is 15×15cm or about 6×6inch. The paper is quite thin with just 50g/sqm. For modulars i would definitely suggest to subdivide into four or nine smaller sheets for most modular origami models. Then your paper is perfect for super precision folding.
